Legal notice sent to free footpaths and roads

Update : 01 Nov 2016, 01:22 AM
A legal notice has been sent to police to free roads and footpaths from Zero Point to Sadarghat yesterday. In the legal notice Supreme Court lawyer Manzill Murshid requested the concerned police officials to comply with a High Court directives within 24 hours or else he will move to a contempt of court petition before the High Court. The High Court in February, 2012 had asked Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) to clear footpaths and roads within 48 hours for the sake of easy movement of people and vehicles. The directive said: “Nobody will be allowed to occupy the roads and footpath by keeping construction materials, rickshaw-vans, carts, cars, makeshift shops, etc, there.” The court had also asked for a progress report on complying with the order every 30 days, but that did not happen. As a result the lawyer sent the notice to the officers-in-charge of Ramna, Bangshal, Kotwali and Sutrapur police stations.
